Solar panels have become extremely popular in the past couple of years. While solar panels offer excellent benefits for helping reduce home energy costs, they can also be problematic for residential and commercial property owners. Various species of birds, such as pigeons and sparrows, find that solar panels provide an ideal location that is a warm and safe shelter that is ideal for building nests and raising their young. The problem with pigeons is they can nest and mate year-round, which means once they move in, they have no plans to move out. It’s estimated that over 30% of solar panels already have pigeons living under them, and that number increases daily.

Are pigeons really that big of a deal? YES!

Having pigeons or other birds living around your home is a huge deal. Their nesting activities pose significant issues with your roof’s structural integrity and can be a health risk.

Pigeons are also extremely messy. When pigeons build a nest under your solar panels, they use some weeds, twigs, and droppings to glue everything together. It’s absolutely disgusting! Over time, their droppings will continue to build up under the panels and gutters, eventually rolling off the roof and covering your patio below. If left untreated, bird droppings can cause several types of damage to your roof. The droppings contain high uric acid levels, which can eat away at roofing materials over time. This can lead to cracks, holes, and leaks in your roof, which can, in turn, cause water damage to your home’s interior. It can also create a slippery surface that can be dangerous to walk on, particularly if you have a sloped roof. This is a safety hazard for anyone needing access to your roof for maintenance or repairs.

Unfortunately, pigeons are also usually really good at creating a mess of everything around your house, such as your patio, outdoor furniture, or toys. Every solar panel job also will include helping to pressure wash and clean anything the pigeons have left a mess on.

Are bird droppings dangerous to human health?

Bird feces, also known as bird droppings or fouling, can contain harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses that can potentially make humans and or family pets sick. These microorganisms can cause various illnesses, from mild infections to serious respiratory diseases.

One of the most common pathogens found in bird droppings is Salmonella, a bacterium that can cause food poisoning in humans. Salmonella infections can result in symptoms such as fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. They can be particularly dangerous for people with weakened immune systems, such as the elderly and young children.

Another common pathogen found in bird droppings is E. coli. Like Salmonella, E. coli is a bacterium that can cause food poisoning and lead to serious intestinal and kidney disorders in humans.

Bird droppings can also contain a variety of fungi, such as Aspergillus and Histoplasma. These fungi can cause respiratory problems in humans, such as pneumonia and asthma. In some cases, exposure to bird droppings can even lead to a rare lung disease called Histoplasmosis, which can be life-threatening.

In addition to the health risks posed by the microorganisms in bird droppings, the droppings themselves can also be a health hazard. When bird droppings dry out, they can become airborne and release microscopic particles that humans can inhale. These particles can irritate the lungs and lead to respiratory problems, particularly in people with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma. It is essential to clean up bird droppings promptly and safely to prevent the spread of disease.

A buildup of bird droppings around your house will also invite insects like flies and cockroaches. Both insects are attracted to and feed off of filth, which can also begin to spread additional bacteria.

What do we do now?

Call a professional (us)! Seriously, this is one of those situations where DIY isn’t the best way to deal with the problem. We have trained with North America’s best bird control experts and know exactly what it takes to provide lasting solutions.

Why Solar Panel Barriers?

Solar panel barriers are designed to protect your solar panel investment and your roof. The reason we install a barrier is to make sure that the birds can’t live under your solar panels. Mucky Boot Pest Control uses high-quality material for our barriers. We also thoroughly clean your roof, under your solar panels, and rain gutters. Once we have the roof, solar panels, and gutters all cleaned out, we treat the roof and under solar panels to remove any pheromones that would continue attracting them to your house. Only after a proper cleaning has been performed can a solar panel barrier be installed.

Our solar panel barriers are the strongest. We custom manufacture the barriers to fit your system and secure it in a way that will not damage your panels or void any warranty.

Bathroom and Dryer Vent Covers

European Starlings and House Sparrows are notorious for getting into bathroom vents, and building huge nests. This can cause severe problems because the nests are messy and usually accompanied by a lot of droppings. The nests will smell and can be a health hazard inside your home. These birds are also boisterous and are known to wake homeowners up well before sunrise when they start singing and scratching on the vent duct.

We use only the best vents to protect your house from birds, even if we need to get them custom-made. Stainless steel vents are the longest-lasting protection for your home. Utah has drastic cold and hot temperatures making plastic barriers crack in just a few years. Not only are they the best protection, but they also look great on your house.

Why is it important to have nests removed from vents?

Removing a bird’s nest from a dryer vent is crucial because it can be a potential fire hazard. Dryer vents are designed to expel hot air, and when a bird’s nest blocks the duct, it can restrict the airflow and cause the hot air to accumulate inside the dryer vent. This can lead to overheating of the dryer and increase the risk of a fire starting.

Bird nests can also trap moisture in the vent, which can cause mold and mildew to develop. This can lead to unpleasant odors and potential health problems for household members. In addition to the risk of fire and mold, a bird’s nest can cause your dryer to work less efficiently. A blocked vent can cause the dryer to take longer to dry clothes and use more energy, resulting in higher utility bills.

No matter what kind of bird problem you may be dealing with, we are excited to meet with you to present genuine, long-lasting solutions to solve your problems. So call us today to schedule an inspection so we can help make your home or business bird-free.

I know people already rave about Dana Mucky Boot Pest Control but I’m here to rave even more. We had invasive Starlings nest in this dryer vent, easily 25’ in the air on the side of our house. I called around and was quoted $500+ for the removal…
I called Dana on a Sat, he answered my call and gave me a quote over the phone (SIGNIFICANTLY less than $500) and he came out on Monday. He was honest, reliable and did an amazing job. He also did a discreet job of not telling my family exactly what was happening to the babies which I’m MORE THAN GRATEFUL for! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for him!

We had Dana clean our roof and install barriers around our solar panels to keep the pigeons from nesting under them. He did such an amazing job and we are so glad we contacted him to help us out! My only regret is not calling him sooner. Thank you so much!!!
